pace 2000. locking itelf up

Hi, every now and then my pace 2000 NTL box throws a message up about some nonsense to do with updating my TV on demand list. It asks to press the red button to dismiss the message. All very well but poor old Tivo cant interract in that way so a) I get a recording with that message all over it and b) even worse the tivo cannot change channels on the pace until a human has dismissd the message!

Im going away over Xmas and fear all my To Do list will be rendered useless if the Pace decides to display that message

(it also happens should the IR wand and dongle screw up the number send, in which case I get a message about the channel requested not being available, but thats less of a problem, its doesnt happen that often. enough to make me angry but no more)

can i stop the NTL box trying to update its TV on demand list?

I dont know what it is, it 'could' be a problem with the IR, the tivo may be mistakenly calling the TVOD number up. That dongle thing seems far from 100% reliable

Do you use leading zeros on your pace? or enter command?

My Pace 2000 details are in my sig - on Telewest but the same rules apply.
You would do well to buy a mains timer switch to restart your cable box every morning - that way regardless what the box does you should only lose one evenings viewing.
It also helps to prevent the cable box slowing down leading to poor channel changing.
